Project description

Digital technologies offer opportunities to rethink and redesign art, music, and sports lessons (KuMuS). Digital technologies are a promising medium especially for the targeted promotion of individual learning requirements of pupils. To integrate these technologies innovatively and successfully into everyday life in schools, the "KuMuS-ProNeD" project aims to develop an integrative overall concept for teacher education in art, music and sport and thus complements the "MINT-ProNeD".

The KuMuS-ProNeD consists of three interdisciplinary and cross-phase networks (Further Training, Teaching Development and Counselling, and Future Innovation Hub) and Translation & Dissemination, in which eighteen universities and research institutions cooperate. The IWM is active both in Future Innovation Hub and Translation and Dissemination.
In cooperation with the University of Stuttgart, Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and Freiburg University of Music, and with the participation of teachers and educationalists, IWM develops in Future Innovation Hub scenarios for future art, music and sports lessons using digital technologies. Based on existing empirical findings and in dialogue with teachers, applications based on cutting-edge technologies (e. g. AI, VR, sensors, and multi-touch devices) are being tested and evaluated for their use in art, music, and sport lessons. The aim is to develop innovative concepts for digital-assisted teaching that are conducive to learning, to determine the opportunities and risks for each discipline and at the same time to reflect on the social and ethical implications. A decentralized and step-by-step approach will help to test and implement these new concepts and technologies first in the partners' research institutions and then in local schools.
In the Translation & Dissemination working area, the IMW, together with Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart, the German Institute for Adult Education-Leibniz Centre for Lifelong Learning, Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education, and the participating state institutes, is responsible for providing examples of good practice and findings from the joint project. The infrastructure and expertise of the information and qualification portal for university lecturers "" will be used for this purpose. In particular, materials will be created as OER (Open Educational Resources) based on the results and findings from the joint project's research on innovative teaching and learning environments in the field of digital education. These are prepared and made available specifically for teachers, school administrators and multipliers in the education sector. The development of innovative transfer formats is carried out at the IWM in close cooperation with the "Zukunftsraum" sub-project of the transfer centre of the learning:digital competence network.
